. according to the new york times, the cia first used the base in 2011 to kill the muslim cleric and u.s. citizen anwar al awlaki in yemen. the revelation came two days before a senate hearing to confirm counterterrorism advisor john brennan as director of the cia. brennan is a former cia station chief in saudi arabia who reportedly worked closely with the saudis to gain approval for the remote base. the news comes a day after nbc news published a secret justice department memo outlining the obama administration's legal rationale for assassinating u.s. citizens overseas even when there is no intelligence indicating the targeted individual is engaged in an active plot to attack the u.s. on tuesday, white house press secretary jay carney was asked about the assassination program. this is part of his response. >> we have a knowledge united states that sometimes we use remotely piloted aircraft for strikes against specific al qaeda terrorists in order to prevent attacks on the nine states and seven american lives. we did that those strikes because they're necessary to mitigate ongoing actu

president obama wants to head the cia. john brennan was pressed hard on the use of drones and enhanced interrogation techniques by members of the senate intelligence committee. government memos leaked earlier this week showed drones had been cleared for use against u.s. citizens suspected of working as terrorists. nbc's tracie potts is live with details. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. brennaned defended and strongly defended the use of drones but distanced himself from how the bush administration questioned terror suspects. >> truth, the full truth and nothing but the truth. >> reporter: it looks like john brennan is gaining the support of several lawmakers, after defending drone attacks on terror suspects and even americans. at least three killed so far. >> any american who did that should know well that they in fact are part of an enemy against us and that the united states will do everything possible to destroy that enemy to save american lives. >> reporter: drones are used against imminent threats, he said, not as payback. but some are still concerned if it's le

defense secretary lee crop panetta -- for leon panetta. his nominee for cia director john bener faced pretty tough questioning. coming up what brenham had to say about the cia use of water boarding. >>> 5:05 is the time right now. the roads are a bit wet. you need to take your time. >> yeah. when i was driving in i had to use the windshield wipers. steve will let you know more about that. i will let you know there have been a couple solo spinouts as people may have been driving too fast for the conditions. this is a look at 80 westbound. there are no major problems here as you continue down to the maze and that area. also the morning commute looks pretty good if you are driving on 80 westbound. it's a nice looking drive to the bay bridge toll plaza and beyond into san francisco. and the morning drive on the nimitz freeway looks good from hayward to fremont. not a bad drive at all. you see 13 minutes later on in the morning i think it will be a lot more than that. this might be your opportunity to get on that road. let's go to steve. >>> thank you, sal. our system is rotating out. in f
hearing for john brennan, the president's nominee, a good man, to be the next director of the cia. and brennan is known at the whitehouse, among other things, former deputy at cia, for being the architect of america's drone policy. he is the one who decides when drones are used and who they are targeted and what american citizens might be targeted. this is bound to come up. several senators have already told me they are going to craze this question with john brennan and publicly said so. and just at the time they are preparing for this hearing this white paper, this was written by department of justice, for members of congress and sent to them last summer but for some reason, it never -- nobody ever leaked it until this week. we still don't know who leaked it. but this paper is pretty chilling. the paper is an unclassified document. so there is no breach of national security here and it's a department of justice explaining why they think the use of drones to kill american citizens on foreign soil is just justified justified. and they say it is -- it'
with oversight of both the cia and the department of defense. i think the discussion is probably helpful. having said that, thomas, you know, we've killed more than 3,000 jihadists in the last several years of these drone campaigns, hundreds of strikes. they were running them out of iraq, afghanistan, yemen, you name it. they've been an important tool to keeping the american people safe. so i think we should keep in mind that these are not law enforcement operations. they're acts of war against a terrorist threat to the united states. >> so the drone program, if we look at it, it has ramped up under the president. there have been 400 -- more than 400 cia strikes against targets in pakistan and yemen. as we look back over history, that's eight times as many under president bush. now, the drone attacks, they often have collateral damage. they kill civilians. so doesn't that strain the ongoing future relations between the u.s. and countries where these attacks are taking place, because aren't we creating more problems for themselves when a civilian is killed and they dedicate themselves to trying t
the cia scandal, the proud sponsor of the conservative feats in 2006 and 2008 who wasted fat cat money by the tens of millions, that karl rove is thumping around the country right now like a wounded elephant threatening to crush the party's fringes. tea partiers, look out. he may not be able to beat democrats, but he's got big, bad you in his sights. so the fight has begun. while steve king, matt kibbe, joe walsh, rush limbaugh, all the inhabitants of the cuckoo nest are scrambling because karl rove is drawing lines in the sand. want republicans to win? cut out the crazies? want the democrats, stop giving them easy targets, rape candidates and witches. stop making the democrats look smart and reasonable by running stupid and crazy candidates. the joy is, i have to say this, and it's really quite funny, each of the right wing factions thinks that they are the sane ones, they are the ones who have to protect the party from the others. well, tonight the duel to the death drives deeper. it's do or die, fight to the death. the winners get to run against hillary clinton. the losers get to sa
counterterrorism adviser john brennan faces his confirmation hearing to be the new cia director. brennan has been the architect of the drone policy and one of its biggest defenders. >> it's a surgical precision, the ability to eliminate the cancerous tumor called an al qaeda terrorist. >> brennan will be facing other questions during today's hearing including what he need about enhanced interrogation techniques when he served as top ranking cia official during the bush administration. another issue likely to come up his acknowledgement that he's been questioned by federal prosecutors investigating national security leaks under president obama. brennan told the senate intelligence committee he's been told by his lawyer he's only a witness in those probes. >> michael isikoff, thank you. ron widen is a member of the intelligence committee and has pressed the white house for more information on its drone policy. senator, thank you for being with us. first yes, are you satisfied after saying the president was practicing secret law and stone calling, are you satisfied these memos are being released to

we have -- there are three people who are giving a seminar at langley, c.i.a. headquarters, to law officers, hundreds of them, and we believe they will be teaching them things that are offensive to us. yeah, because they call them what they are. they read from their own documents. and these individuals who have spent their careers learning and teaching about the threat of what secretary clinton called the global jihadist threat, were stopped in august a year and a half ago by a call to the white house. that call also was instrumental in prompting this administration through the intelligence department, the justice department, all these departments, the f.b.i., into purging documents, purging words, purging things from our materials that someone who wants to destroy our way of life and take us up and make us a caliphate may be offended by. i can't go in to what has opinion purged because they decided to declare it a classified setting when michelle bachmann and i and for a while lynn westmoreland went through documents to see what had been purged. documents that we knew before we we
tonight from abc news reporter jonathan karl. >> one count president obama has already used unmanned cia croan to strike more than 300 suspected terrorists targets. even more than his predecessor. but today we learn just how much authority the administration believes it has to kill without trial or evidence suspected terrorists. even american citizens. newly disclosed justice department document says american citizens tied to al qaeda can be killed if quote an informed high level official believes the target poses an imminent threat. document says it quote does not require the government to have clear evidence. case in point. this american citizen and top al qaeda leader link to several terror attack. he was killed in a 2011 drone strike. human wreaths advocate say the justice department memo goes way too far and. >> justifies essentially a claim that the executive branch can be judge jury and executio executioner. >>reporter: as soon as he became president barack obama stopped cia tactic like world trade center boarding that he considered torture but this justifies out right killin

to be confirmed. >>> it could be a grueling day for president obama's pick to head the cia. john brennan will face tough questions from democrats and republicans during his confirmation hearing. brennan, the president's chief counterterrorism adviser, is under scrutiny for the administration's use of drone strikes to kill suspected terrorists overseas. the senate intelligence committee will also likely grill him over his support for the bush administration's interrogation policies. brennan served in the cia under president george w. bush. >>> members of the senate intelligence committee will soon learn more about the obama administration's drone program. the white house says the justice department sent classified advice about the program to the senate and house intelligence committees. the documents reportedly state that it is legal for the government to kill u.s. citizens overseas if it believes they're high-ranking terrorists who are trying to kill americans. >>> and a drastic call by the pentagon this morning ahead of what could be huge budget cuts next month. the navy will reduce the number of

defense secretary. a different committee hold as hearing for the man picked to run the cia. john brennan. for more of these controversial nominees, let's bring in our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, and gloria borger. dana, what are your sources telling you about chuck hagel's confirmation? >> reporter: well, you know, there are supposed to be at least the chairman, carl levin wants a vote in the senate armed services committee tomorrow but it might not happen. one may reason is that many republicans on the committee don't want it to. we're told that they are circulating a letter urging senator levin to delay it. and they say, these republicans, that they are still waiting for key information from hagel. for example, senator lindsey graham told me he still doesn't p have information about the speeches that hagel gave, who he spoke to, what he said, and what he was paid. and the ranking committee, james inhoff said he's looking for people to slow this train down. senator levin doesn't like partisan food fights. and so an aide said that they would not be surprised if levin do
: as soon as he became president, barack obama stopped cia tactics like waterboarding, that he considered torture. but this justifies outright killing of a suspected terrorist. how does dropping an bomb on an american citizen without any judicial review, any trial, not raise the very human rights questions or more human rights questions than something like waterboarding? >> the president understands the gravity of these issues. that's why he's committed to taking very seriously, both his responsibilities in this. >> reporter: the white house says the president's top priority has been protecting the american people in a way consistent with our values. but you can expect that his choice to run the cia will face sharp questions about this later this week at his confirmation hearings. and some in congress are trying to impose limits on the administration's ability to use drone strikes. jonathan karl, abc news, the white house. >>> and as congress tries to limit those drone strikes, the president has his own message for capitol hill about the economy. on march 1st, deep cuts to government spen
in public when president obama's choice for cia has his confirmation hearing. john brennan will be asked questions about interrogation techniques such as waterboarding including carrying out drone attacks against u.s. citizens. the white house is expected to stay ahead of that controversy. last night the administration acknowledged it would give congressional committee members access to classified documents that outline the government's stance on drone strikes against suspected terrorists who are also american citizens. the report will be in the hands of those lawmakers just hours before john brennan's confirmation hearing begins, and he will be the one today who's answering questions about the legality of killing americans who are believed to be senior al qaeda leaders such as the american-bern cleric anwar al awlaki who was killed in a 2010 drone strike. critics say the strikes violate the law. >> we have a president who is doing something that even president bush didn't do which is to order the killing of the united states citizen without clear evidence of an
to be the next head of the cia. and andrea mitchell, i wonder if this could, in any way, get in the way of brennan again. >> well, this is so much in a state of flux right now. clearly, i mean, the president's called to senator wyden last night, so unusual to try to reassure him and try to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. the fact is that brennan was already going to be asked about enhanced interrogation techniques. john mccain has raised those issues. but in terms of the democratic group and actually susan collins was one of those as well, the 11 senators led by john wyden and three of them are on the committee including wyden and susan collins, and they were pushing for the release of this. and then mike rogers on our air yesterday, the house intelligence chair not in the confirmation process, but he lent his voice. senator feinstein was obviously working behind the scenes. and so finally last night around 6:30, 7:00 last night, the white house relented and the president called wyden. i know you guys are going to talk to wyden later. but this is a very big deal becau
